In the summer of 1978, Robbins Barstow and his wife Meg, of Wethersfield, Connecticut, USA, took a four-week East African Safari Tour to Tanzania and Kenya, sponsored by the New York Zoological Society. This African wildlife adventure film includes scenes of 53 different species of animals and birds, filmed in the wild, among them Elephant, Giraffe, Rhino, Hippo, Lion, Leopard, Zebra, Wildebeest, Cheetah, and Impala.

WE WERE THERE!
Wow, such a great film and it brought back so many memories of our '78 trip to Kenya with you and Meg. We never know that you made a movie of our adventure, but I do remember you as "the whale man" always with a movie camera and a recorder.
It was not until I saw your obituary in the NY Times that I discovered your movie credentials and the Kenya film.
Ironically, we are in the midst of finally digitalizing our '78 Kenya slides - 60 rolls taken. Your movie adds to our enjoyment and that of out 2 grandsons!
THANKS FOR BEING SO CREATIVE AND GOD SPEED TO YOU.

Environmental awareness of African animals
This is the first movie that I have viewed from beginning to end, and I am very impressed, as is my husband.
Being lovers of animals and the natural world, we appreciated Robbins Barstow's comments about the conservation efforts in Africa and the endangered status of species there.
Very enlightening and entertaining. Thank you, Robbins.

Adventures with African Wildlife
This is a fantastic Trip into East Africa's National parks, with great photography, even including some wildlife sounds when appropriate. It's a gift to the viewer, that Robbins and Meg Barstow would so kindly bring us along with them. I don't know how they did it; you'd think they had a whole crew to help, but I think it was just the two. Filmed with appreciation and wonder of it all, plus an emphasis on the need for protection & conservation. Very worthwhile to view.
